Jordan

Postby English_Wolf » Fri Nov 17, 2017 4:08 am

I took this in Jordan, on the hill dominating the city of Amman. The capital actually lies at the intersection of three valleys and is surrounded by hills.

The hotel we stayed in was bombed a few weeks later.

Anyway, when I take this type of image I try to add a human element so there it is.

I think that is one terrific picture! All the elements come together. (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Great photo. Shows scale, neat arrangement of elements, wonderful contrast. I wonder why you left in the light bottom right and the wires? Just curious. Matt

Probably not. Graham doesn't either. Matt
